After School Programs

Here at the Williamsburg Bridge Magnet School for Communication and  Mixed Media Arts, we place an emphasis on providing Project-Based Learning opportunities for our students in all modern forms of communication.  We believe in providing students with an appreciation of a wide variety of artistic experiences in order to develop the whole child.


Making use of Communication and various forms of Media, as well as Fine and Performance Arts, we infuse all of the strands of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics- into our students' school day. Please read below to learn about many of our exciting Magnet opportunities!

Pre-K After School

Beginning September 2018, Pre K after school will run from 2:20 to 5:30pm. Students will have the opportunity to engage in play based activity centers incorporating art, music, and dance. For more information please call our main office. 

K-5 After School

Grand Street Settlement offers free after school programming to our students through COMPASS, a nationally acclaimed network for school-aged youth. From homework help and mentoring, to robotics, dance and recreation, Grand Street provides engaging, child centered learning experiences. 

Drama Club

Grades K-5 students learn performing arts and public speaking skills in an enjoyable, mutually supportive environment. They employ their newly discovered skills and talents in musical theater presentations. 

College Camp

Students in grades 3-5 are provided two hours of additional academic support in subjects like Math and English Language Arts after school on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Debate Club

The Debate Club is made up of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. They meet once a week and work with the students of M.S. 50. Debate is a formal argument where groups of students present opposing views about a particular issue.
